This is a library of perfboard and single-sided PCB effect layouts for guitar and bass. I'm not an electrical engineer by any stretch of the imagination, just a DIY'er who likes drawing layouts. It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

Free the Tone HB-2 Heat Blaster
Got a request for this one. Basically a Tube Screamer with a few mods and some extra switches to cut highs and lows. The original has 2SC185 transistors, which have BCE pinout. I've laid this out for the more typical CBE pinout. Like you would in a Tube Screamer, try 2N3904, 2N5088, etc for the input and output buffers.
